    Rambus Inc. has signed a deal with Qimonda AG, a leading global producer of DRAM memory products, for producing Rambus XDR memory devices. The Rambus XDR solution will be implemented in Qimonda's 75nm process technology for integration into high-volume applications, including game consoles such as Sony Play Station 3, digital televisions, set-top boxes and PC graphics.
    Rambus XDR DRAM, as part of the XDR memory architecture, achieves an order of magnitude higher performance than today's standard memories. Perfect for graphics processing, consumer electronics, network, and server applications, a single, 2-byte wide, 3.2 GHz XDR DRAM component provides 6.4 GB/sec of peak bandwidth, and enables PCB savings and cost savings by utilizing the fewest number of ICs.

    Apparently, this XDR is supposed to be the next "thing" in memory. I know the PS3 uses it and AMD licensed it or shares with it with Rambus.
